Alma

10 Alma Road, Sidcup, DA14 4EA
Sidcup's only traditional pub with soul at its heart from the owners, the staff and of course our guests.
Another Update 17th November 2020

Thank you to all of those who have contributed to us being in another lockdown and spreading the virus even more! Well if you can call it a lockdown when everything seems to be just as normal apart from pubs, bars, restaurants, gyms and beauty places! (we know its others too but its nowhere as bad as last time, you just need to drive around to see that) How can a market go ahead when what they sell is not essential and other businesses have been closed that sell the same thing? Doesn’t make sense does it! Just makes a mockery of it all and yet we are left here closed with nothing we can do about it yet others try to get away with it!

Just to confirm to you all that we will now be taking bookings from 5pm each day once we have reopened, please send us an email to info@thealmapub.co.uk to get yourself booked in but do not do this just yet as we do not know what restrictions we will be opening under! Also to confirm to you that as much as waiter service will be the norm for now we will not be charging a service charge to you as this is not your fault so why should you be penalised even more!

TO BE UPDATED, WE DO HOPE THAT THE RULES WILL BE THE SAME!
Due to the current government guidelines in relation to Coronavirus, the following laws/guidelines need to be adhered to, these are:

We will be closing at 10pm each and every night, this does not mean drinking up time, this is the time you need to be leaving by,

No children/babies are permitted in any part of the pub or garden,

Your mask / face covering must be worn as soon as you enter the pub, this can only be removed once you are sat down,

Whilst you are in the pub you must be seated at all times unless you are going to the toilet, for a cigarette or leaving, again your mask must be worn whilst you are doing these actions,

You must sign in no matter if you come in everyday,

If you have the NHS COVID-19 app then you must scan in as well as sign in,

Our staff will be doing full waiter service, you are not to go to the bar for any reason, please be patient, waving your hand to get someone’s attention will not get you served quicker,

Please do use the hand sanitizers that are provided at the entrance and all around the bar,

If you do have a cough, temperature or live with someone that does then please do not come to our establishment,

Those who are exempt and smoke please do not come to our establishment, if you are genuinely exempt then you do need to book as we have very limited seating that can accommodate you without putting our staff and other guests at risk.

The Alma is tucked away from the beaten track on Alma Road, Sidcup. We pride ourselves on everything that we do and everyone is always welcome. The pub was built in 1868 and still holds many of its original Victorian features as well as having a function room and a good size garden. We offer freshly cooked pub food from Monday to Friday 12pm to 2pm with all the classics, then a reduced menu until 9pm 7 days a week. We have a fantastic wine list which gets updated seasonally and we also have a good selection of beers and ales with one of the latter having a change every couple of months along with our ever expanding spirit gin list. We are very competitively priced for what we offer. Mat's Fun Pub Quiz is on each and every Monday night at 7:00pm sharp with the winning team taking home anything from 2p to £50 plus there are mini games which wins a round of drinks for your whole team.

The Alma is a medium sized pub with two bars separated by an archway, there is also Victorian tiling at the entrance to the saloon bar. The second bar (function room) is a 1930's extension and is available for private hire, send us a message with what you are looking for, unfortunately we do not cater for 18/21 birthdays as we are a challenge 25 venue.

We ask all guests to respect the following:

• We are a Challenge 25 venue
• Children & babies are not permitted in any areas
• Dogs are not permitted in any areas
• Due to allergies and intolerances any food or drink consumed on the premises must be purchased from the bar
• All our seating is meant for sitting, not lying, putting feet on or standing on!
• Baseball/Sports caps are not permitted in any areas, we are not a sports bar
• Do not come in your dirty work clothes, you will be asked to go home and change as we offer a clean environment for everyone, more so with what is happening in the world!
• We will not tolerate any form of abuse to any of our staff, this will be dealt with severely!
• Bad attitudes are not warranted
• If you have a complaint then ask to speak to Ronnie or Mat, don’t go leaving a faceless review online, we are approachable people and would rather you left happy after a chat with us, leaving a faceless review will get a stern reply!
• No admittance on Friday’s and Saturday’s after 11pm, this includes smokers.

We have our rules in place to protect everyone and to make your experience with us a memorable one, if you do not adhere to these rules you will be asked to leave, no matter who you are, who you are with or how long you have been frequenting the pub. Repeat offenders will be barred with no hesitation.
